Guest Reviews


    • “The pictures on the website did not do this property justice. It is on a complex of similar properties with an enviable view over the river valley. The gardens are immaculate and the walks round and about are idyllic. What a lovely spot, really relaxing and highly recommended.”

    Mr Richards, Eastleigh, January 2015

    • “It was spotless and everything was in great condition. Was really impressed by the general standard of the cottage, and was much better than others I have visited. The bedding was of good quality and all of the beds were comfortable. The parking was very easy, and the whole cottage was comfortable and well equipped. Thanks for a great stay!”

    Ms Roberts, Manchester, November 2014

    • “Cottage was clean, modern and well-equipped. Local amenities are fab, great for dogs and outdoor life. We would book again.”

    Mrs Dunckley, Wareham, October 2014

    • “Fantastic location, lovely walks, good choice of places to eat out within walking distance and no need to go out in the car. We were also very lucky with perfect weather.”

    Mr Howett, Newbury, September 2014

    • “We loved the Cottage & the welcome of the cream tea was greatly appreciated. The Cottage is ideally located for exploring the Wye Valley and was furnished to an excellent standard. A great place to stay.”

    Dr Hughes, Leicester, July 2014

    • “The setting is ideal for a walking holiday based around Symonds Yat and the Cottage is probably the best self catering in which we have ever stayed. The icing on the cake was realising that there was a coffee machine the same make as my own which meant that I could take all my favourite coffee pods with me. I would give it 6 stars!”

    Mr Walker, Newport Pagnell, July 2014

    • “Obviously the location was superb and weather gorgeous. Cottage was an ideal base for exploring and was located in a nice area.”

    Mr Cheshire, Lutterworth, April 2014

    • “We had a wonderful time the location is lovely especially as my husband is a fisherman. The local pub was very friendly and scenery was perfect.”

    Mrs Tarvis, Leighton Buzzard, December 2013

About the location


Monmouth 5 miles; Ross-on-Wye 7 miles; Gloucester 23 miles.

The pretty village of Symonds Yat straddles the beautiful River Wye with its natural scenery and magnificent limestone 'rock', popular with climbers and is internationally renowned for its viewpoint. Symonds Yat West is situated overlooking the beautiful Wye Valley, and is close to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Visit the historic town of Monmouth with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offering excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Just a little further afield discover the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. A great area to unwind with family and friends.
